Children at Shela village in the city had a delightful morning courtesy of their friends and classmates who performed on a series of dance and musical numbers. As part of their community outreach programme, student members of Micavaani – Mudra Institute of Communications’ (MICA) community radio, organised an annual event known as ‘Aapno Manch’ for the villagers on Saturday.
Children at the government primary school in the village participated in the dance and music competitions which were organised as a part of the annual celebrations. A number of villagers also participated in the singing competition. Both the events were judged by Micavaani students, good at their respective arts.
“It was euphoric to watch these kids perform. They choreographed their performances by themselves,” said Raghav Sharma, Micavaani member and student of PGP1 at MICA.
Sharing her views on the annual event, Preeti Shroff, MICA’s dean, told dna, “With Micavaani, these children and villagers have more or less become a part of our family. MICA students have constantly endeavoured through our community outreach programme not only to impart knowledge to these children on various subjects, but also give them a voice and platform to showcase their talents.”
The management and communications institute has been extending its community outreach programme to four villages in the campus’ neighbourhood namely, Shela, Telav, Ghuma and Kaneti.
